Where is Sunset? by Guillaume Riesen published on 2013/06/22 23:17:00 +0000 This is a recording I made to further explore the idea behind a comic I made: http://i.imgur.com/0b0n6.jpg I took some artistic license here which I hope was not excessive. Here are some disclaimers: This is really only valid at the equinoxes, when the terminator line passes through the poles. The actual locations of sunrises and sunsets are a bit scattered due to differences in elevation. I don't actually know if traffic jams would ever be visible from space or even the upper atmosphere. I do know that the earth is actually an oblate spheroid and not a perfect sphere. Doesn't roll off the tongue quite as well.
